Description

Continuing on with Seahorse week I would like to introduce the Kelloggi Seahorse (Hippocampus Kelloggi), or also known as the Great Seahorse, not sure what is so great about it compared to other Seahorses but it’s still pretty cool.

If you want to identify a Kelloggi, look for a backwards curved spine cheek, the spine on the cheek will curve back toward the body, in this image you can see it to the right of the eye and slightly down.

One of the things I liked about this photo was the outline or weird halo the Seahorse has around his head and body. This is caused by a thin layer of algae build-up which resemble very fine hairs all over his body, the hairs are of equal length which coupled with the dive lights make it look like someone copy & pasted this little guy right onto the background.

Trust me, it’s a legitimate shot and no copy pasting done here, just an odd lighting quirk caused by the hairs/algae on this Kelloggi Seahorse.

So that means now on Kata Beach we have found all of the following types of Seahorses listed below, click for an image of them.

The Pygmy Pipe Horses Of Kata Beach

Up until last month, I had seen maybe 3 Pygmy Pipe Horses in over 8 years of scuba diving, in fact, Pygmy Pipe Horses were fairly mythical and rare for the waters of Thailand. I remember the only place we ever found them with any certainty was Richelieu Rock Similan Islands and the Surin Islands. [...]

Stone Fish Staghorn Sentinel

Referring to Stone Fish as Sentinel's is probably a bad description for them, Sentinel's & Gargoyle's are actually silent protectors of the weak and helpless, where as Stone Fish typically prey on the defenseless for a snack. So are they good guys, definitely not, they lie in wait till something is [...]
